Digital ballasts are easily the best ballasts you can find for metal halide lamps. The digital processor inside of the ballast will automatically detect the type of bulb, and the start mode that will allow it to fire properly. Once the lamp is fired and running the ballast will also set the proper power output to the lamp for the best color and intensity.

Reef Brite Digital Ballasts are fully dimmable through any 1-10V controller like an Apex. The ballasts use true incremental dimming instead of variable wattage like other leading ballasts. Incremental dimming allows you to ramp up the lamp up and down manually through your controller. We do recommend running the lamp for 1 week before using the dimming feature, allowing the bulb to “burn-in” giving the lamp a much longer lifespan.
